Materia Medica is so wide a term that it is diHi- 
cult to define. It includes the following : 

(a) Materia Medica proper, sometimes 
called l'harmaco<,'n()>y. This is the knowledu'f^ 
of the natural history, physical cl'aracters, and 
chemical properties of druf,'s. 

(b) Pharmacy.— This is the science and art 
of the preparation and coiii hi nation of drugs, so 
as to render them lit for administration. 

(c) Pharmacology.—This is the science 
which treats of the actions of drugs on the hodv 
both in health and disease. A suhdivision of 
it is Pharmacodynamics, which is the science 
of the physiological action of drugs in health. 
The science studies the effects of doses 
large enough to endanger life is Toxicology. 

(^/) Therapeutics is the science and art of 
alleviating or curing disease. Many authors 
do not include this under the terni Materia 
Medica. Therapeutics is either 

(1) Rational, when we have sutKicient 
knowledge of the disease and the phar- 
macological action of the remedy to know 
why it should he of beneiit, e.g. The use of 

digitalis for mitral disease. 



(2) Empirical, when our knowlodpe 

IS iiisiifliciont to tell us wliv tlie remedy 

IS etriciejit, cjj. The use of salicylates for 

rheumatic fever. 

Therapeutics oui^'ht not to he ijKlu.hd in the 

term Materia Mcdica, for that treats oulv of drui^^s ; 

hut Therapeutics, properly speakin.i:. is concerned 

with all means of alleviation. 

General Therapeutics is a suhdivision of Thera- 
peutics ; it is the science and art of alleviating,' dis- 
ease hy such remedies as are not drug's, c.(i? diet, 
climate, haths. venesection, and cupping'. In this 
work we shall consider only that part of Therapeutics 
whieh is concerned with drui^'s. 

A Pharmacopceia is a hook j)ul)lished hy some 
authorised hody, i^'enerally constituted hv law. This 
hook descrihes the di'ULrs in common use, and f^'ives 
direetionsconeernin-.'themakin-of preparations from 
them. The liharmacopceias and the authorities jmh- 
lishinf,' them differ in different eountries. '{'hv British 
Pharmacopoeia is puhlished hy the General Medical 
Council. The last edition appc'ared in 1S!)S. As new 
drup are discovered they are. if of use. included in new 
editions of the Pharmacopceia. Kvi-rvthim,' contained 
in the Pharmacopcria is said to he •' ollidal." The 
a]>l)reviation for " l>ritish Phai'macopoMa " is " B. P." 
An addendum to it, containing,' drut^'s otlicial in India 
and the Colonies, was puhlished in !!)()(). Thesedru<'s 
are descrihed at the end of this hook. 
^ The ^Council of the Pharmaceutical Society of 
fireat P.ritain have ])uhlished a valuahle hook. "The 
l')ritish Pharmaceutical Codex," containing' many pre- 
parations not in the " Bi itish Pharmacopa'ia." Sonu! 
are mentioned in this hook. When prescrihed. P.P. 
Codex should he put in a hracket after them.

(c) Into serous cavities by injection. This method is 
rarely u.~ed in man exc i jjt when the idij^ ct is to uash out. witli 
saline >olution, ii -eruus cavity, as the pleura. \\hi(di has been 
opened, or to produce adhi.~i\e inllammalion, as n tlie injec- 
tion of irritants into the tunica vaj.;iniilis. 

ill) Into mucous cavities. -Dru^-s are mo~i freiiuenily 
j.;i\en liy the mouth, to be ab>orbed from the mucous mem- 
brane of tlie stomach or intestines, but the laie of al)>or)ition 
i- much slower than from the subcutaneous tissue, and w'" 
(b-jietid upon whether the druj; is reaiiily soluble in the ;:astr> 
intestinal -ecretions, and wliether it is giM'u on an enipf. 
stoiiiai'h. in which case it will lie ipiickly absorbed ; or on i full 
one. when it will be >lowiy alisoi be<i. Some dru>.'s. ^dven liy the 
mouth and absorbed from the stomacdi or inte.-itiiies, probably 
never reach tlie ^'eneral circulation. a> they are excreted in 
the- bile by the liver. The diu<-' should be in a i)leasant palatable 
form, and, j^'cneraily, so coinluned as not to irritate. 

1 >ruj,'s are sometimes !^'i\en by the rectum in a solid 
form a^ suppositories, iii a lii[i;id foini as enemata or 
clyster-; but they are neither dissolved nor absorbed liere so 
(juickly as in tiie upper jiart of the ^,'astro-inte.-M,inai canal. 

For local etTeets they may be ^.dveii by the urethra or 
vagina (injections, boug-ies, pessaries), or by the re- 
spiratory passages (inhalations, cigarettes, sprays, 
in- nebulae for inhaling) ; insii£B.ations for blowui;^' into 
the throat and larynx; pigmenta, gargles, lozenges, for 
a local effect on the mouth and jiharynx : nasal douches 
for the nose. For sprays an atonii/er is reipiired. Sometimes 
volatile drugs, a.-, chluroforiu or amyl nitrite, are inhaled for 
their general etleci. 

(<■) By the skin. - Some drugs may be absorbed from the 
skin if mixed with some fatty substance. In this wav mercury 
may be absorbed by being rubbed in ; but drugs are cliiefly 
applied to the skin as ointments, plasters, Ac, for tlieir local

7. Mental Emotion. Som. times if the patieut'.s tuind 
IS particularly fixed on tlie action of the druj.: a snuill dose is 
pouerfu!. l-'orexamiik'.oftcn, if tlie patient is convinced he will 
sleep, a Mvy small dose of morphine is all tliat mav he re(iuired. 

8. Temperature. As the action of the'dru- on the 
or-ani.-^m 1-^ oil. n partly chemical, the temperature must, in 
coldhlooded animals and excised structures, as inusci.'. Ac, 
help to determuu' its action ; hut the temperature of man varies 
within so few degrees that this i.; not an important factor in 

niedlcilU . 

9. Preparation of Drug^. A .suiall-r dose ot a soluhle 
preparation, a^ a tincture, uill he leqiiiicl tiian of a .solid 
piepaiation, as a pill, which will have to lie -lowiy dis.solveil 
hefore ah.-orption. 

10. Rate of Excretion. It is ohvious that, oth.^r things 
h-iiig eijual. a .-^luiiller dose will he re.juired of a drug tliatrs 
i-lowly excreted than of one which is rapidly excreted. 

11. Cumulative Action.- Sometimes it is found that 
it a pers.jii ha.- heeii taking a drug re-ularly, but without 
the production of any toxic .symptoms, these will .suddenly 
develop. This is said to he due to the cumul.-itive action <,i the 
drug. It may he caused hy the following circuiiHtance.s : 

(a) The <irug may he ah.s(;rhed more rapidiv than "it if 
excreted. This is the cause of the cumuhitivi' action of 
mi rcury and lead, both of which are excreted witli ditlicultv bv 
the kidney. ' ' 

(b) Tlieie may he a sudden in the excretion of the 
drug. Ithasbeensuggested that digitalis and stryclinine. when 
the .piantity of them in the tissues readies a certain amount, 
contract tiie renal ve>.sels, an.l hence excretion is arrested. 

((•) It is possible that, owing to an alteration in the intes- 
tinal contents, a drug which wa.s prcviouslv verv slowly dis- 
solve.l becoiiies (p-iicklydissolved, and hence" rapidly absmhid. 

12. Disease.- The jihysiological action of drugs, and 
conseiiuently the dose, are "rofoundlv !!!;-.:i!f:<;| ]j-- Ji-.-.^if-. 
Tor example, a patient with peritonitis will hear enonnous 
doses of opium. Antipyretics, wiiich do n<;t atYect a normal 
temperature, powerfully depress a f. hrile temperature. 

13. Species. -iJilferent animals are often able to with- 
stand largely ditferent doe -. Thus birds are very toh^rant to 
opium, herbivora to atropine, and he.lgehog^ to manvpoi.,ons.

The more complex prescriptions consist of 

(1) The r>asis. or ])riii(ipal a(t,\( ingredient. 

('2) The .\djuvans, or lliat \siiicli assi-^ts its action. 

(.'{) Tile Corri^-'iis, or tluit whicli corrects its <>jh ration. 

ill I'he ('oii>tituens. vehicle, or excuiient. whi<-h iiuiMit-^ 
an a^,'reeahle form. 

'l'hu> tiie ohjcct of c\cry prescription is, if p(i>sii)lc, to curi' 
ipiickly, .-afely. and pleasantly. l''iir example, in I'ihila Colo 
cynthidis et HNoscyami thecolocynih i- the l,a,-is. th>' aloe■^ and 
scammony form the adjuvans, and the extract of hyo-^ttvamus 
is the corrij^'iis to prevent the i-'ripin^:. In Mi.-turu Cret.e the 
cinnamon water is the vehicle, .^^,lny dru;:s do not require 
anythi.;^' to assist theii- action orccirrrct tlieir oper.ition. 

Incompatibility of ingredients 4'otilil ho par- 
ticularly avoided in presc'ri[)tioiis. 'I'here are three 
kiiius of iiicomptitihility : 

{a) i'lirtnual hicointHitihiliti/. i'-ually when chemica! 
inc<inipatibility occur- in a pre-ciijnion. it i.s due to inter 
action lietween two Mdiilde s:ilts leading' to the fornuition of 
another salt. Sometimes chemical incompatihiiitv i- en 
countered desi;jne(ily. for example, peichloride of inercurv 
i.- often prescriheil with i)ota>sium iodide, mercuric hiniodidc 
is formeil, but is kept in solution by the i xce-s of i)o[;i>>ium 
loilide. Often, however, in careless prcseiipi ions, the intei- 
action id' soluble salts leads to the form ition of » salt which 
is insoluble in the mixture, and a preupitate falls to the 
b.'ltom id' the bottle. It is inijioi tant to remember that 
glucosides siiould not be ordered with free acids, which them; nor alkaloids or alkaloidal salts with 
alkalies, alkaline salts, tainiii- acid, iodides, or bromides, for the v 
]necipitat>' them, l-'ailure to remember this lias caused deatli,

" Relation between Chemical Constitution and 
Physiological Action. There is no doul.t that the jihy- 
siolo'-'ical action of a dru^' often d.peiids upon it-; cheiiueal 
constitution. Naturally, suhstances which are hroken u)) m 
the hody in Nueh a way as to lead to the lil.eratiou of a common 
i'l.nient or L'roup will have a similar action, riie action of 
a dru;.' also depends upon (dectrolytie dissociation of its solu

Antiseptics are drugs which arrest putrefaction, 
I'ithcr hy preventing the growth of, or completely 
destroying, the micro-organisms on which decomposi- 
tion depends. Some authors limit the use of the 
word to those drugs which prevent the growth of 
micro-organisms, and call those suhstances which 
destroy the micro-organisms disinfectants. 

Statements are most discordant as to whether 
certain substances are antiseptics, and as to the 
strength of their antiseptic power. This is because 
antiseptics act differently on different organisms ; 
and the distinction has not been drawn between pre- 
venting the growth of and destroying micro-organisms. 
Also because the power of antiseptics depends upon 
the temperature at which they act, the medium in 
which they are dissolved, the strength of the solu- 
tion, the time given them to act, and the number of 
micro-organisms present in the substance to which 
they are added. 

To properly test the value of an antiseptic the 
above conditions must be noted. All instruments 
and substances except the fluid containing the 
micro-organisms to be tested are heated so that 
any adventitious micro-organisms are destroyed. 
A cultivating medium, such as agar-agar jelly, 
in which the micro-organisms will grow, is se- 
lected, and two test-tubes, each containing some of 
it. are taken ; to one of these the supposed anti- 
.-( ptic is added. Some tiuid containing the micro- 
nrganisms is then added to both test-tubes; both 
are plugged with sterilized cotton wool to prevent 
tlie entrance of gernib from the air, and it is observed 
whether the micro-organisms will grow in the tube

ing the antiseptic. As the power of an antiseptic 
depends on so many circumstances, no exact order of 
their potency can be given, but roughly the more 
powerful are placed first in the following list ;

(a) Saltaction. Thor;o by osmosis extract water from micro- 

orgiini'^ms and so kill thom, e.g. conmion salt (used 

forprc-crving meat) and sugar (for presorving fruit). 
ih) Oxidiilinn, e.g. potassium permangnnato. Chlorine, 

bromine and iodine act in the presence of water by 

abstracting hydrogen. 
{c) Reduction, e.g. .sulphur dioxide in the pn'sence of 

water, and formic aldehyde, which, however, also 

combines with proteins. 
(<l) I'n(Mpitation of proteins, e.g. many metals by acting 

<lirectly on the micro-organisms an<l also on their 

food in solution. 
(e) Protoplasmic poisons, e.g. coal-tar products. 

Wo do not know of any drut^'s which, whon taken 
internally or inhaled, will certainly destroy micro- 
or^'anisms, either in the j,'astro-intestinal tract or re- 
spiratory passages;, they are sufliciently concen- 
trated to be fatal to the patient. Some authorities, 
however, consider that naphthol, calomel, cyllin, and 
eertain other substances will destroy niicro-orr^anisms 
in the stomach and intestines, cyllin being the most 
active. As the ethereal sulphates in the urine are 
increased by bacterial action in the intestine, they form 
a gauge of the etTicacy of intestinal antiseptics, ami 
it is said they are a little decreased in some diseases 
after giving these drugs. Many attempts have been 
made to combat diseases due to micro-organisms by 
ihe injection of antiseptics into the blood, hut there 
is no evidence of any success. 

Deodorants or deodorizers are substances which 
destroy disagreeable smells. There are too many for 
enumeration. Many antiseptics are deodorizers. 

Antizymo' '.OS. — This is a word sometimes applied 
to drugs which arrest fermentation. 

Anthelmintics are drugs which kill such para-

A. Drugs acting on the Plasma. Many sub- 
.-tances must iiftcT absorption exist in solution in 
the plasma, and purgatives, diuretics, and diapho- 
ittics must alter the composition of the plasma by 
abstracting substances from it. Only very slight 
changes in the reaction of plasma, which is normally 
practically neutral, are compatible with life. It is 
never necessary to make the plasma more acid as 
any excess of alkali is neutralised by cari)onic acid, 
but in certain conditions there may be an excess of 
acid, which requires neutralisation. This is done 
by means of the carbonates, citrates or tartrates of 
the following metals : — 

{1\ "Potassium. (4) Lithium. 

(2) bodium. (",) Magrnesium. 

(3) Ammonium. (d) Calcium. 

The citrates and tartrates of these metals are 
i)\idised in the body to alkaline carbonates. 

Therapeutics. — Alkalies are administered to 
reduce the acidosis of diabetic coma, sodium bicar- 
bonate being the drug usually selected. They are 
also gi\en in gout in the hope of increasing the 
solubility of uric acid in the plasma. As the treat- 
ment is continued for some time, a preparation 
which does not upset digestion, such as potassium 
citrate or lithium citrate, is usually preferred. Both 
potassium and lithium urates are more soluble than 
the sodium urate, but the change produced in the 
comixDsition of the plasma must be very slight. The 
excretion of potassium and lithium carbonates in the 
urine, which results, aids the excretion of uric acid 
l»y increasing its solubility in the urine and by 
causing diuresis. For the same purpose natural 
alkaline waters are frequently prescribed. 

In Icad-poison'uuj the lead is locked up in tlin 
nssues m a very sparingly soluble form. Potassium 
iodide is given because some authorities believe 
It increases the solubility of lead in the plasma, and 
consequently facihtates its excretion by the kidneys.

Indirect haematinics are drugs which benefit the 
patient by removing some obvious cause for his defi- 
ciency in hiomoglohin, or an.emia, as it is generally 
td-iiud. Such are mercury, given fur syphilis, 
ijuinine fur ague.

by oxyt^'en and liy<lni(\anic aciil, an<l tlieir number is said to 
lie increased by small doses of mercury. 

A lar^e amount of sodium chloride causes the red cor- 
I>u.-.cles to pass rapidly throu<,'h the walls of the capillaries. 

There are some drugs which are not employed 
therapeutically for their action on the blood, which 
art' nevertheless very important physiulogically and 
lo.xiculogically, for they kill by altering the composi- 
tion of the haemoglobin, thus preventing its unit- 
ing with oxygen. Such are carbonic oxide, which 
displaces the oxygen from oxyhiemoglobin form- 
ing carboxyhamoglobin. rutassium chlorate, aceta- 
nilide, phena/une, piienacetin, pyrogallic acid, potas- 
sium permanganate, and nitrites, especially nitrites, 
convert the hiemoglobin into metlnemoglobin, and 
ilestroy tlie red corpuscles. 

Phospliorus, sulphuretted hydro^'eii, turptntiiH-, iodine, 
Jiiid sulphur also reduce oxyhn nio;,'lobiii. I'hospliorus is 
I -pi eially destructive to the blood. 

When freshly drawn blood is exposed to the air its oxidi- 
zation is diminished by hydrocyanic acid, alculiol, chlorofornj, 
ipiinine, morphine, nicotine, strychnine, and brucine. 

C. Drugs acting on the White Corpuscles.— Most 

if not all drugs which are poisons to auueba- are 
puLsons to white corpuscles when applied in sufticient 
strength, which, huwever, is rarely the case iu the 
imniau body. All irritants which set up inilamma- 
tiun cause the white blood-corpuscles to wander 
through the capillary walls ; and all the cinchona 
aiii.aivius iiai c i.^^ i^-unci. ui uriLoi,iijg luis migra- 
tion ; of these, quinine is the most powerful. Acetani- 
lide is also powerful. If the quinine is circulating 
in the capillaries, it prevents the white corpuscles

B. Drugs acting on the Vagus Centre.—If we 

observe that the giving of a drug to an animal alters 
the heat of the heart, hut that this alteration can he 
done away with either hy cutting the vagi or stimu- 
lating the peripheral end of the norve~if one only 
of them he cut --we may conclude that the drug acted 
on the vagus centre in the medulla. The excitability 
of the vagus centre depends so much upon thi 
v.nosity of the blood and the blood-pressure^and so

These arc usually .Ludied . iilier by directly 
ol).^erving alteration.s in the size of the vessels in 
some thin structure, such as the ear of a ral.hil, the 
mesentery, ton^'ue, lung, wel., or mylohyoid of a frog, 
or the wing of a hat ; or the rate of thJ Mow nuiv ho 
ohsi rved. This can be convenit utly done by cutting 
some part, as the toes of a frog, and noticing the 
rate at which the blood flows from the cut vessels with 
and without the administralion of the drug to the 
animal. It is often necessary tijat an artificuil circu- 
lation should bo maintained ; for, if not, it might be 
ditHcult to prove that the alteration in the c^rantity 
of blood flowing from the cut surface was not due to 
inlluences acting on the cardiac mechanism. In ord( r 
to determiiio if the changes are due to local or central 
elfects, it is necessary to destroy the spinal cord, or to 
cut the nerves going to the part. When a drug is ap- 
plied locally, as to the mesentery, aiul the vessels alter, 
if the nerves going to tlie part are not cut, it is <lith- 
cult to say whether this alteration is direct or rellox. 

Drugs are applied to the interior of vessels by 
nijecting them into the circulation. 

We know that each vessel is controlled by 
vaso-constrictor and vaso-dilator nerves, and that 
these proceed by different patlis from the central 
nervous system, but we do not know upon which set 
of nerves drugs act; probably some upon the vaso-con- 
.strictor,and some upon the vasodilator. We can only 
classify the drugs into those which dilate or contract 
the vessels by local action, and those which produce

nervous system. When a drug acts locally we can- 
not toll whether it acts on the muscle in the wall 
oi the vessel, or on the nerve terminations.

Escharotics or caustics are the most powerful of 
all the above drugs. Their local application kills the 
part to which they are immediately applied, and sets 
up vascular dilatation of the surrounding area ; e.g. 
strong nitric acid, zinc chloride, silver nitrate, and 
arsenious acid. 

Counter-irritants.— It has been shown by experi- 
ments on animals that when the vessels of the skin 
are dilated by the application of an irritant, those of 
the viscera, especially those in the abdomen, are often 
reilexly constricted, leading to a rise of blood- 
pressure and slight acceleration of the heart and 
respiration. The same is probably true of man. 
An irritant is called a counter-irritant when it is 
applied to the skin with the object of con'-^ricting 
the vessels of the subjacent viscera. It is particularly 
to be remembered that this is a reflex nervous action, 
:ind is in no v v due to the withdrawal of blood into 
the dilated ves. ..s of the skin. Experience has shown 
that certain organs are I st influenced by application 
of the counter-irritant to a definite part of tiie skin, 
c.(j. a blister applied to the epigastrium reheves 
gastric pain. Usually it will be found that the area 
of the skin is that which Head has shown to be 
associated with the viscua.

C. Drugs acting on Vaso-motor Ganglia.— These 

are the same as act on tlic cardiac <,'anglia (see n. 52) 
After transitory stimulation they paralyse thewm^'ha 
ana hence blood pressure falls. Some think that^he of blood pressure caused by er<rot is due to 
stauulatioR of these ganglia. 

Astringents are drugs which diminish the size of 
vessels, and so decrease exudation from them. 

Styptics or Haemostatics, are drugs which stop 
i>Urding Tliey comprehend aU astringents, espe- 
cially cold, lead and copper salts, hamamehs, ergot 
tannic acid, and above all per-salts of iron, for they 
coagulate the blood which is flowing from the vessel 
and the clot prevents further bleeding. Matic(! 
leaves (13. P. 188o), because of the numerous hairs on 
tlirir under surface, favour coagulation of bloo<l 
V. lu-n locally applied to a bleeding surface. Cobwebs 
act in the same way. 

Therapeutics.-Drugs which locally dilate vessels 
are appned Lo sLimuiate sores to heal ; they promote 
absorption of inflammatory products, including bac- 
terial toxins which increase the resistance of the body 
to these toxins, as seen in the application of iodine 
over certain diseased joints ; they act as counter- 




irn ants in disease of deep-seated organs, as in the

A. Diaphoretics, or drugs which increase the 
amount of perspiration. These may do so either by 
stnuulating the sweat centres in the spinal cord, the 
nerves proceeding from the centres to the glands, the 
itrminations of the nerves in the gland, or the ghin- 
dular cells themselves ; or dilatation of the cutaneous 
vessels may, by the increase in the amount of blood 
and the greater warmth, sthmilate the glands and lead 
to an mcrease of sweat. It is difficult to tell whither 
drugs acting on the vessels do not also act on the other 
parts of the mechanism ; and it is also difficult to 
decide whether a drug acts on the gland-cells or the 
terminations of the nerves, so we will consider dia- 
phoretics under two headings, those wli;ch act ceii 
irally and those which act peripherally. These are 
ditlerentiated by observing whether the drug acts 
af or the spinal cord is destroyed, and on a part of 
the skin after the nerves going to it are cut. 

(a) Diaphoretics acting i^nphcrally : Pilocarpine 
K'rtutly increases the amount of sweat, acting on tlie nerve 
tcnninations in the gland-ceils, and certainly not on the 
vessels. Muscarine acts just like pilocarpine. Nicotine 
also acts peripherally. Local applications of warmth, and 
alcohol taken internally, perhaps act in the same way in 
uddition to their vascular action.

(3) Ammonium citrate. 

(c) Diaplioretics wlwse mode of action is doubtful: 
Colchicum, salicine, lobelia, aconite, potassium citrate and 
acetate. All these, except the last two, are very feeble. 

When a diaphoretic acts very powerfully it is called a 
Sudorific. ^ IT J 

B. Anhidrotics, or Antihidrotics, drugs whicli 
dimmish the amount of perspiration. The part on 
^ylnch these act is determined in the same way as in

Division VI — l>riif;«i arliiii; on tlie 
I'i'inary s>^i<>in. 

1. Druga increasing the quantity of urine secreted. 
Theso are called diuretics. The kidney is a double 
organ with two distinct varieties of epithelium ; it 
is particularly well supplied with vessels and vaso- 
motor nerves, and is also profoundly under the 
iuflnejice of variations in the quantity of blood 
flowing through it; hence it is, with our present 
state of knowledge, impossible to sav how many 
diuretics act, but the following table (p' G2), modified 
from Lauder IJrunton's work, shows the various ways 
in which they probably act, many in more ways 
than one. Probably the most powerful is extract of 
the posterior part of the pituitary body, which has 
I'een shown by Schiifer to cause dilatation of the 
renal vessels and a greatly increased flow of urine. 

Therapeutics. Diuretics are used in cardiac and 
pulmonary diseases when, owing to tho general vas- 
cular disturbance, the quantity of urine falls below the 
normal standard. Also in diseases in which there is 
excess of fluid in certain parts of the body ; for ex- 
ample, pleuritic effusion and ascites, with the object 
of getting rid of as much fluid as possible by the 
kidneys. Also they may be used to dilute the urine, 
i\'j. when it is prone to deposit its solids. Lastly! 
in certain forms of kidney disease, although in these 
maladies it is always a question how far it is de- 
sirable to stimulate diseased organs. It is of great 
importance to remember that diuretics may act in 
niany different ways, that there are many causes for 
diminution in the quantity of urine secreted, ajid 
that it is ditiicult to say in any particular case what 
i> the cause of the decrease in the quantity secreted.

Therefore it is usual to 

give diuretics in combina- 

tion, in the hope that if one of them does not haw 
tlu; desired result another will. 

2. Dnujs diminishing the quantity of urine 
secreted. These are such as produce acute intlam- 
niation of the kidney when given in large doses ; 
(•.<j. turpentine, cantharides, phosphorus. They are 
never given for this purpose in medicine. 

8. Druys rcndcrimj the urine acid.- The chief 
ollicial drug that can do this eflfectually is probably 
benzoic acid, for in its passage through the kidney 
it is converted into hippuric acid. Benzoic acid is 
therefore given when from any cause the urino under- 
got'S alkaline decomposition anywhere within the 
urinary passages. Acid sodium phosphate is the 
natural acid of the urine, and its administration by 
the mouth increases the acidity of that fluid. Salicylic 
acid will, to a slight extent, increase the acidity of the 
urine, as will very large doses of citric or tartaric acid, 

4. Drugs ichich render the iirine alkaline.—Thoaa 
organic salts of the metals potassium, sodium, 
lithium, calcium which are oxidised in the body to 
carbonates and excreted as such by the kidneys, such 
as the tartrates and citrates, and to a less extent 
the acetates, will do this. The carbonates have the 
name effect. Nitric acid is said to increase the 
amount of ammonia in the urine, and thus to render 
it shghtly alkaline. Organic ammonium salts and 
ammonium carbonate given internally do not render 
the urine alkaline, because they are decomposed in 
the body, urea being probably formed. 

Lithontriptics are drugs which prevent the de- 
jtosition in the urinary passages of the solids of the 
urine. If this fluid be acid, uric acid often crystal- 
lizes out, forming gravel or uric acid calculus; less 

calcium oxalate calculus. \\ hen there is any hkeli- 
hood of the formation of either of these calculi, 
alkalies may be given. If the urine is undergoing 
alkaline decomposition phosphates are liable to 



crystallize out In this case the ohject will he to 
render the unne acid and aseptic. This will he 
Httamed by ..vm^^ n^nzoic acid, salicylic acM the 
acid phosphates, and urij.urv antiseptics 

Therapeutics. The chief use of alkalies is fo the acidity of the urine, so as to render 
he precipitation of uric acid unlikdv ; or to ren le 
It alkaline so as to attempt to dissolve a uric add 
calculus \Veknowofno dru^^ which will dissol 
an oxa ate of hnie calculus. Alkalies are also .'i ' , 
to .irouty suhjects. partly to alkali/e the hlood , 
also partly to alkalize the urine, for such p .'s 
are very prone to deposit uric acid in th.^uS e

A Drugs acting on the Teeth. Soaps and 
Mcw.iers are used for elcaain- the teeth. The basis of 
most tooth powders is chalk, which acts inechanieally ; 
charcoal is sonietinies used in lb.' same way. As llic 
food is very liable to collect and decompose between 
ihf teeth, antiseptics, as quinine, borax, and carbolic 
acid, are often mixed with tooth powders. Astrin- 
-cnls, such as rhatany and areca nut, are employed it 
ilic -Muns are too vascular. Mineral acids and alum 
arc Tniurious to the teeth if used for a lon^,' time, and 
iron is liable to stain them ; therefore these substances 
are l)est taken throu.-^di a (luill, and should not bo 
used as L'argles for long together. 

Toothache may he relieved by local anodynes, 
a< creosote, or strong carbolic acid. The tooth is 
nlu'"red with cotton wool soaked in one of these. 
Clean cotton wool is placed over the carboli/ed wool 
lo prevent the acid from reachmg the mouth, ihis 
method mav damage the tooth pulp. 

B. Drugs acting on the Salivary Glands.— Much 
aiieniion has been devoted to the submaxdlary 
-land of the dog, and there is no reason for suppos-_ 
in-' that the other sahvary glands of that animal or ot 
oiher creatures ditVer markedly from it. \\e know 
iliat the submaxillary gland is under the influence ot 
the chorda tympani nerve, which contains vaso-ddator 
til)res, and also some which directly modify the secre- 
tion of the gland apart from the secondary effects,

cause of indigestion is thought to be that the amount 
of hydrochbiric acid secreted is deficient. In cases 
of indigestion in which, from tho nature of tlie 
vomited matters or from any otiier reason, it is con- 
sidered that thtie is an excess of acid in the stomach,

Internal. It may he -riven internally for neur 
al^'ia, l)ut it does not siicr(<'d nearly so well as wIk n 
ap]»lied extt rnally. It is nfit used internally so miuli 
as foniKrly. wii.n it was administ(-red in almost everv 
febrile disease, with the object of d( creasinj^' the force 
and tension of the pulse. It was said to do tiiis verv 
(dl'ectiially. '.>ut l*ri< .■ did not find that it reduced the 
rate of th" pulse in some patients he examined; the 
reason why it is not so popular at the present time 
IS that It is not now th()U;.dit desirable to reduce the 
force and freipiency of the heart in these diseases. 
Perhaps it is usid too little, for many htdieve that 
till' milder febrile diseases, such as ton-^ilitis, larvn- 
f^'itis, or a conunon cold, are ilistinctly benefited'by 
aconite, especially if they occur in 'children. In 
addition to retarding the {julse it increases per 
ypiration and lowers the temperature. As lar^. 
doses diminish tlie force of the heait. it is usuallv 
given in doses of two or three minims of the tinctur'' 
every hour or so till the pulse falls to nearly normal 
for the same reason it is not advi-able touse it feu- 
prolonged fevers, as typhoid, nor when the heart i~ 
diseased, except in the few cases in which there is 
sullicieiit comp. iisative cardiac hypertroi)hy. In 
Hiu h canliac cases ii is sometimes ust'ful to slow 
the jiulse, evi'ii whiii there is no fever, it will occa- 
sionally relie\e the pam of aneurysm. A common 
practice was to comltin' with it oiie or two th\)ps of 
Vinum Aiitimoniale,as tnat has much the .same action 
on th( heart, hornu'rly it was much us(><l in surgery 
if it was feared that intlammation might set in after

u'l iMisiulation. It has somv antiseptic powt rs, for 
11 can (IfStroy anthrax bacilli, Imi ii has no •■tfcct on

Mil to sonu' otht-r constituent. 

Internal. A Ihmnturij cntnl.-Uvrv also the 
irritatinj.,' action of ipecacuanha is si'cn. it increa-^en 
.}\v llow of saliva, (iilales the i,'astric vessils, and 
:iiiiulatcs the secretion of ira-tric juice. Therefore 
~mall doses are distinctly stomachic. and aid dijj:estion. 
1 .ar^'e doses are. liowfver. powi rfully emetic. This is 
. ill. liv due to their irritant etlVct up(*n the stomach, 
tail in a much less deirrce to the fact that emetine 
-I. ft s directly upon the vomitin;,' centre in the medulla. 
- ran he proved liy ohservuiu' that when the alkaloid 
~ thrown directly into the circulation vomiting' fol- 
"mws before there' is time for it to have been excreted 
,nt() the Htoniacli. ipecacuanha is therefore boih a 
direct and an indirect emetic. It produces a certain 




a?iiouiit of (Ipprrssion, hut not iiKin- than the iiK-r. 
act of voTiiitiiifi; will cxjjlain. It (lo»-s not usualiy 
cause nausta. The irritant tOVct is continued in 
tljf intestine, an<l hviura inia. exee-sive secretion. 
arxl pur;,Mii^' resuli. In ily.sentery there is a peculiar 
tolerance of ipecacuanha. Ipecacuanha is said to 
increase the amount of hile secreted, and if so is a 
direct cholagogue 

Circulation. — hnv^r doses nf f'UU'tine depress 
the lieart powerfully, the hlood tension falls, and the 
heart finally stops in diastole. 

Jirsjiirdtioi. — This is unafTectcd. Ipecacuanha 
powder wh( n inhaled, or if emuiL'h ipecacuaiilui i-' 
taken internallv for it t > he excreted hv the bronchial 
mucous memhrane, causes hyperaiiiia of it, to^'ether 
witii an increa~t d secrttion of bronchial nnicus. and 
therefore, retlexly, cnuirhiii^' is stimulated. It is con 
seipiently an expectorant; and because it depresses 
thf circulation a little it is called a depressant exp«c- 
torant. Aninuils to wliich lar<;e doses of ipecacuanha 
or of fiuftine have been piven show, after death, 
consideralde hyperjcinia of the bronchial nuicous 
membrane, of the lunf::s, and of the stomach and 
intestines, and tlie same conditioji of the re'ipiratory 
passa^'es is seen if ipecacuanha ])o\vder has been 
inhaled. \Vith therap('Utic doses, however, any e\ 
pectorant action is mainly due to reflex action fr in 
irritation of the ston)ach. 

Skin. — Ipecacuanha is a mild diaphoretic. 


External. — Ipecacuanha is ne\^r at the present 
day employed for its external irritant efTect. It ha-^ 
been used with success, as an antiseptic, in cases of 
anthrax. It is directed that the wound should bt

cause of at least some of them is' the impurities 
existing in artiticial salicylic acid, Imi it is stated 
that the natural acid nuiy very raiely give rise tu 
them. Orthocresotic acid is certainly toxic, meta- 
cresotic acid has no action, and it is <louhtful 
whether paracresotic acid is toxic. The commonest 
symptom is deafness, which is often accompanied 
hy ringing in the oars. Headache is also verv 
frecpient. The administration of the drug i- 
usually stoppeil when tliese symptoms show them 
selves, but if it i.s continued' the patient becomes 
violently didinous, there is nausia and vomiting, 
the face is llushed, and the other symptoms increase 
in severity. The falls in both fre(piency ami 
force, it becomes irregular, epistaxis is coiumon, 
and liMMnorrhrges from other parts of the body 
have lieeii recorded, such as haniaturia and retimil 
luemorrhage. Albuminuria without luematuria has 
been observed. One of the rarest symptoms is iry- 
thema or urticaria. Very iMrge doses mav cause the 
breathing to i)econie weaker, and death' mav take

-welliiiL', leads to a ra})id cessation, of ])aiii, and 
iiminishes the liability to pericarditis and oihei' 
.implications. It nnist be j^iveii well diluted to 
I'lCNent dyspepsia. The sodium salt is ()ften pre- 
:• rred as being the most soluble, but in order to 
iiminish tlie risk of salicylism it should be i)repared 
• It her from jHire artificial ur from natural salicylic 
1 !. If tlie attack is severe. 20 <,M-ains every two 
Ml threi' hours shouM be t,'iven for the first twelve 
i>r twenty four hours; then, if the patient is doini,' 
A ell, the frequency of the dose may be gradually 
diminisiied, but it should be continued thrice daily 
feu- ten days after the temperature is normal and the 



pain ha'< cca-cd. i he luicro-orf^'iini-m wliich is th 
cause of rln'iiiiiatic f.vcr forms foriuit- acid, wliicti 
is cMTctcd l)v the swrat and uriiir. Tii,. forniatinn 
of this acid is contrdlh .1 ]>\ ihr .iiiniinistratioii of 
salicylic acid. Salicin is not so [.owtrful as sodinin 
salicylate, l)iit it i< said to ]..■ 1, -,-• depiv-sant than 
the synthetic acid.

.severe osteoarthritis, l)ut occasionally th.' ])ains of

Salicylic acid or salicin may produce a fall of 
temperature in any fevc i', Imt.' as we have more 
certain antipyretics, tlu-y are not used except for 
rheumatic fever.
